Online photo printing services are not a new concept. There are a plethora of competing websites that offer a range of products, catering for the requirements of casual one-time users through to professional photographic studios. With the increasing cost of ink, home printing can be prohibitively expensive for amateur photographers, who may only be looking to produce a few prints per month. In these cases, ink can be wasted if left unused for extended periods, further complicating the economics of the self-printing process. Meanwhile, for large-format prints, professionals can still benefit from online options, if reproductions at these large sizes are rarely a necessity.
